Artist Information

Lauren DeMaio


Lauren began her education by taking a couple of elective classes at Manchester Community College.  Her love of clay had not yet been discovered, but her creative passion was finally utilized. After being coerced by a fellow artist who saw her potential, she took a couple more classes.  She then transferred to Central Connecticut State University to pursue her degree in Liberal Arts & Sciences, and it was there she decided to major in Ceramics.  Following her education she found a studio space in Bristol Connecticut where she began to both practice production pottery while still hand building and working to refine technique and remain fluid in the artistry.  She continues to work independently throwing for local restaurants, special orders, and for the pure joy of creativity.

Louise Coupar Currently lives in Connecticut.  In 2009, she received a B.S. in Art Education from Central Connecticut State University where she also achieved a M.S. in Secondary Educational Studies in 2015.  She earned her MFA from Maine College of Art in 2017.  Coupar’s work has been showcased in numerous juried exhibitions including her most recent showing at the ICA in Portland, ME.
